This 12th century church originally in the parish of Willingale Spain is a peaceful stop on the Essex Way.

Now in the care of the Churches Conservation Trust, the Friends of St. andrews and All Saints encourage visitors to appreciate the serenity of this historic building.

Tours can be arranged by appointment by email



St Andrews Church in Willingale is a wonderful place to stop and reflect.

St Andrews is 900 years old and there is evidence of a wooden church before then. Steeped in history with no modern facilities.

St Andrews is a place to step away from the 21st century and take time out.


There are permanent displays on the history of the church and its use as a Parish Church for the USAAF in the Second World War.

Regular thoughtful displays can also be enjoyed such as this year’s harvest mice who took over! photos in album!


We love having visitors

Dogs, children and walking boots welcome!  Those who clean really don’t mind, as we want others to enjoy this special place.
